Do you have persistent issues with your gums? Come and see our hygienist at Spa Dental Sydney CBD
Worried that your teeth are looking a bit worse for wear? Do your gums bleed when you brush, regardless of how much mouthwash you use?
It is a common misconception amongst many dental patients that brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day is enough to prevent periodontal diseases and cavities. While they are both extremely important preventive measures, if you have lower calcium levels due to illness or pregnancy, or have a history of gum disease in your family, it is likely you will need something more.
While you could stock up on the most expensive tubes of toothpaste and mouthwash that you can buy, there is an alternative solution that is more likely to yield better long-term results.
At Spa Dental, our team firmly believes that prevention is better than cure. When you visit our dentist in Sydney CBD if you have the telltale signs of periodontal disease or need some help managing your dental health, a trip to our onsite hygienist may be just what you need.
But how can our hygienist and dentist in Sydney CBD alleviate and treat your gum disease? Read on to find out!
One of the leading causes of periodontal disease is a poor diet.
While it may not seem important if you regularly brush your teeth, when you consume a high sugar diet, smoke or consume excessive quantities of alcohol, these can all lead to inflammation of the gum line.
Our dentist in Sydney CBD, paired with our hygienist can offer you free lifestyle advice on how to reduce and prevent gum disease from recurring in the future. We can even show you how to brush and floss your teeth correctly, to minimise damage to the gum line.
Targeted treatment plans
Like many things in life, our dental team at Spa Dental Sydney will work with you as an individual to come up with a targeted treatment plan to help you recover from your periodontal disease.
We will take into account your age, your medical history, any medication you are taking, and if you have any other risk factors (such as family history or pregnancy) when designing this plan, ensuring that all of these factors are taken into consideration.
This plan will be shared with other members of our dental team and other medical professionals if required, to ensure you keep your gum disease at bay for as long as possible.
Scale and polish
Last, but certainly not least, our hygienist team at Spa Dental Sydney can offer you a scale and polish to remove any accumulated and stubborn plaque.
Aimed at removing unseen plaque that is below the gum line, this procedure is an essential part of a treatment plan for almost everyone with gum disease. Using a combination of airflow technology, specialised tools, and medicated mouthwash, our hygienist will aim to reduce any inflammation that you have on your gum line, remove all inflammation-causing plaque and ensure that your gums become healthier. Now that’s a thorough treatment plan.
